Abstract: The aim of the present case control report was to analyze peripheral vascular response of fibromyalgia patient in an intense physical exercise fatigue situation. We analyzed a female fibromyalgia patient, 55 years, 65 kg, 156 cm, 26.7 Kg/m2, with 3 year from the fibromyalgia diagnosis and 10 year of fibromyalgia symptomatology: and a control healthy female participant, 57 years, 73 kg, 163 cm, 27.5 Kg/m2. The peripheral vascular response by thermography was collected in 3 different moments, basal, post fatigue protocol (20 repetition of knee extension and flexion of dominant leg at 180o·s-1), and after 6 min of finishing the fatigue protocol. We found how fibromyalgia patient presented a higher basal heart rate, lower skin hand temperature in basal conditions, similar in an intense exercise fatigue protocol, and lower in the recovery of the protocol than a control participant, and a higher basal skin temperature of thigh muscles in basal condition, higher in the fatigue protocol and lower in the recovery after the fatigue protocol than a control participant.
